While You’re Here
At UNC, research isn’t just a graduate school experience. It’s a big part of an undergraduate education. Receiving $17.5 million in external funding over the past three years, UNC’s faculty and students study, explore and grow through horizon-expanding research. Undergraduate students also deepen learning through internships, student teaching, fieldwork, student mentoring and clinical placement programs.
UNC's Honors Program includes two programs to allow students to explore their academic interests through the classroom and with a faculty mentor. The Honors Interdisciplinary Program offers courses designed for students in any major to incorporate into their studies. The Upper Division Honors Program pairs students with a faculty mentor to complete an in-depth research, applied or creative project.
UNC students in the STEM programs research a variety of topics, both alongside faculty and with peer researchers. Recent examples include using cannabinoids to target cancer tumors, learning the language of math, testing accelerants used in forest fire arsons, and more.
If you want to stretch your learning beyond the borders of Colorado, UNC offers more than 500 programs in more than 60 countries.
Four out of five UNC graduates are employed or attending school one year after graduating.
